No-Man's Land Diagram

Caption: This diagram illustrates the rough boundaries of "no man's land," a temperature region where supercooled water is difficult to study because of rapid ice formation. Using SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source, scientists dipped down to minus 51 degrees Fahrenheit and made the first structural measurements of liquid water in this mysterious region, where water's unusual properties are amplified.
